  • Diane,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Having spent many pool parties with you at my cousins Steve & Nancy Kachniasz, it was a pleasure to know both of you and see the “brother bond” Doug and Steve shared. May good times and memories carry you through your sorrow.

  • Diane,
    I can’t tell you how much my heart aches for you during this very difficult time. May you find comfort in the memories and good times you shared with your beloved husband for the past 19 years. And may you be encouraged in the sad days ahead by the knowledge that “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18

    Our sincere condolences,
    Jocelyn & Cornel
